Nepali Traveler Natural Wool Felt Journal - Kathmandu Valley Co.

A Rustic Journal Unlike any Other

Our Nepali Traveler Journal is crafted with handmade Wool Felt from Himalayan sheep.

The Wool Felt is created layer by layer of rolled-by-hand natural wool. Soapy water is poured over each layer helping to combine and interlock the fibers, creating a handmade vintage felt with a classic journal design.

The lightweight nature of wool-felt makes this journal a great for any traveler.

But the handmade felt isn’t the only thing making the journal one-of-a-kind.

Handmade Lokta Paper (Natural, Non-tree Paper)

The paper used is sun-kissed on the slopes of the Himalayas and is created from the Lokta Bush, a non-tree source.

The bushes grow on the southern slopes of the Nepali Himalayas, and once cut, grow back quickly making Lokta paper a uniquely sustainable paper.

Strips from the inner bark of the Lokta bush are cooked into a mashy pulp which is then spread by hand over large boxed screens and set to dry on the mountainside, creating a paper with natural flecks whose tradition spans more than 1,000 years in Nepal.

Deckled Edges and Vegetable-Dyed Leather

Deckled edges of the paper (similar to rough cut), give the journals that vintage feel many look for in a special journal.

The leather buckle is made from water buffalo leather vegetable-dyed with the time-honored tradition of using black walnut husks.

A Unique Gift, Spanning Generations

The paper is acid free, and the oldest surviving example of Lokta paper is almost 1,000 years old. Give a gift that will last and be treasured, and perfect for the adventurer in your life.
